Enrolment and fees - Athelstone Preschool

Enrolling your child

You can register your interest to enrol your child with us by using the preschool registration of interest form. This form is also available from us.

Try to register your interest by 30 June, but you can do this any time during the year.

Priority will be given to children living in our catchment area. If you don’t live in our catchment area you should indicate at least 2 other preschool options on your form.

If we can give your child a place with us we’ll send you an offer letter in term 3. You can accept the offer by filling in and sending back the acceptance slip by the due date. 

Before your child starts

We will contact you in August to arrange a parent information meeting and visits for the children.

Before your child starts preschool you can come to pre-entry transition visits. These will be in term 4 and will be a chance for your child to meet the staff and other children.


We ask you to contribute towards the cost of your child attending preschool.

The parent contribution is $160 per term.

We offer other programs that may have additional costs.

When to pay

Invoices are issued each term in communication pockets and will specify payment due dates.

Please contact us if you are having difficulty paying.

How to pay

Fees can be paid by cash, cheque or EFT. If you are paying by cash or cheque, please put the money or cheque in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on the front. Put the envelope in the fees box located by the communications pockets.

EFT details are provided on the invoice.
